RUFAE is an international network of research institutions designing and studying interactive spaces. RUFAE's industrial and academic research labs, from France, Germany, Sweden, Russia, and the U.S., cover architecture, cognitive science, computer science, and psychology.
The collaboration currently manifests itself in three main aspects:
  • Spaces: Each member lab is creating and using a prototypical augmented space.
  • Ideas: In monthly phone/video/application sharing conferences betwen our augmented spaces, we present our research in the rufae online seminar, discuss common projects, and share technical expertise. This helps to improve our spaces, their interconnectedness and compatibility, and to establish good practice through real use.
  • People: We have begun to exchange students and researchers between member labs, to transfer technology, and to work on common research projects.
